Upon arriving at Amanyara you will be transported to a world of sea breezes and reflecting pools. Nestled on the tip of a 5,000 acre nature reserve, the headland gives way to a pristine sandy beach on one side and the stunning ironshore with its natural rock bridges and craggy bays on the other. An enviormental paradise. Surrounded by the third largest coral reef system in the world, the Turks and Caiscos archipelago is a haven for marine life, birds, flora and fauna. Much of the land and water were made nature reserves long ago, leaving the islands to remain as they have always been, beautiful by nature. The buildings have low rooflines that converge with the landscape, embracing lakes, ponds and an oceanfront setting that includes low rocky headlands and sweeping white sand beaches. Entry to the resort is through a large reception pavilion that opens onto a grand formal reflecting pond that is landscaped with mature trees. All 40 timber shingled Pavilions are identical in layout and design and fall into three categoris based on their location and views. The Pavilions are of contemporary design with a dramatic overhanging roofline that creates shaded outdoor areas on the three terraces. Large glass doors can be opened on three sides to catch the cooling sea breezes. As at all Aman Resorts, around the clock concierge, maid, valet and room service provide all the gracious touches of home. Amanyara seeks to please the most discerning clients with understated service where privacy, individuality and personal attention are assured. Each trained progessional has the knowledge and resources to help you make the most of your day. Surrounded by nature, serene and utterly private. Complete restoratin and renewal of the mind, body and spirit await in one of the individual spa treatment pavilions. Aman Spa therapists are trained to help create a personal program of yoga, meditation, massage and appropriate selection of essential treatments. Delicious natural and organic foods are prepared with care and respect for a balanced nutritional regimen. Should you wish to stir from basking beachside, the staff are pleased to make charter arrangements for sailing, deep-sea and bone fishing, scuba diving or a round of golf at the nearby 18-hole championship course.
